IT as a service (ITaaS)

Information Technology as a Service (ITaaS) is a conceptual approach to delivering customized IT services. These can be provided from corporate data centers or service providers, they can be obtained from a cloud service provider or otherwise. The ITaaS concept is based on Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS) and Software as a Service

(SaaS). Companies can run ITaaS as a standalone profit center, offering the services and competing with other providers

. Optionally, companies can purchase their services from outsourcing companies or from cloud service providers. With ITaaS, the customer uses the exact hardware, software, and support that they ordered and pay for and that is required to generate, store, and use the business data. As a result, the ITaaS customer has only a small investment, a known cost burden and a completely transparent cost situation. He can monitor the IT services and scale them via the provider, who also ensures that the software and hardware are constantly updated through guaranteed updates.
